County District 4 Community Continues to Be Served


Last updated 5/24/2023 at 12:27pm

The nearly 700,000 residents living in San Diego County’s Fourth Supervisorial District will continue to be served by County government after Supervisor Nathan Fletcher’s resignation at 5 p.m. on May 15.

Access to mental health care, self-sufficiency services, parks and recreation, child welfare services and every other County service will still be available to residents, businesses and nonprofits. And the District 4 Office that represents part of the City of San Diego, the cities of Lemon Grove, La Mesa and some unincorporated areas will continue to be open to serve constituents.

“Our County government will continue to deliver excellent service and support to the District 4 community during the transition of their elected leadership,” said Helen Robbins-Meyer, Interim Chief Administrative Officer, County of San Diego. “The remaining staff of the District 4 Office are County of San Diego employees and will continue to meet the needs of residents, businesses and nonprofits. The Board of Supervisors agrees this is the best course of action to ensure the community is taken care of.”

Anyone who lives or does business in District 4 can still rely on that office to provide valuable County information, receive and respond to their requests, and attend community meetings. They will also assist the new Supervisor during their transition later this year.

The District 4 Office will be operational Monday – Friday. Contact the office at 619-531-5544, or email at and visit
